From my blog...

And Whither Then? I Cannot Say.

Question: What do you do with a travel blog when you’re not traveling?

Answer: Re-define the word travel.

There are many kinds of journeys, and it’s a rare day when I don’t go somewhere – to the market, to the tennis club, out through the Caldecott Tunnel, across San Francisco Bay, or just around the block. Most frequently the journey is inward, a thousand years into the past to a time and place I can only imagine (with a great deal of help from academics who have gone there before me).

So, as I expect to be more or less chained to my desk for the next six months, at least until the 47th  International Medieval Congress next May in Kalamazoo, MI, this space will be devoted to a different kind of travel, as the spirit moves me.

Beware: the pictures I post are likely to be pretty random and whimsical. The photo below is a good example – a creepily cool statue in Budapest as well as a film I yearn to see.

    Pat-
    Great seeing you yesterday and, yes, I decided to follow Peter's injunctions:-) I connect what you say here with what Peter said yesterday (and observe what folks like Linda do)…and that is to be alive every single day and read, watch, process. Nice post here about how you don't have to travel too far to make a meaningful post. Thanks for the idea that I will now put into place for my blogs, saritorial.com AND kalpanamohan.typepad.com.

    And don't forget that Roadwork essay you promised me, Kalpana!
